My Michigan Tech: Matthew Sanregret

Our students know tomorrow needs responsible and thoughtful financial management. Since 1998, the Applied Portfolio Management Program (APMP) has taught students the ins and out of making real investments with real money. There's no better way to prepare for a career in finance or wealth management than to gain firsthand experience.

Manage a bright financial future.

Finance professionals are the drivers of business and investment decisions. They are masters of decision-making in investment management, corporate management, and financial planning. Prepare for your future in finance with knowledge of corporate finance, derivatives, equity analysis, financial technology, global finance, investment, personal financial planning, real estate, and risk management.

Compete in (and win!) regional and national investment competitions. Get involved in the Applied Portfolio Management Program (APMP)—one of the top 50 student funds in the nation—and gain real-world experience on the trading room floor by investing more than $2 million of actual money. Add a minor in FinTech to focus on financial technologies. Engage in research with faculty (and earn national and global attention). Join the Finance Club to connect with industry leaders and take field trips to financial institutions in Chicago and Minneapolis. Plus, learn from professors in small classes—you'll get to know them on a first-name basis.

Michigan Tech's Bachelor of Science in Finance is AACSB accredited and has been accepted into the CFA Institute's University Affiliation Program—that means we incorporate at least 70 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), positioning our students well to sit for CFA exams. Our students are also in high demand by employers who are looking for the tech-savvy business leaders tomorrow needs. Looking to take your education a step further? Earn a master's in one additional year through our Accelerated Master's program.

"My classes are small enough to really get to know my professors. These relationships have been critical to my success here. In addition, hands-on class projects such as using different valuation methods to predict stock prices are helping prepare me for my finance career."Joey Anderson, Finance
